An article from BuzzFeed recently popped up on my Facebook and I thought I would share it. The article is a list of awesome scenes from books that were left out of the movies.
You can view the article here. But beware, from this point on you will experience major spoilers.
There are two scenes that I personally wish would’ve made it into the movies but didn’t. The first scene is Dumbledore’s funeral in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The funeral is such a touching and beautiful part of the book and I wish it had been brought to life, but no. Instead the professors and students lifted their wands up in solidarity while conjuring Lumos. Not as powerful in my opinion.
The second scene is in Lord of the Rings. The chapter is titled The Scouring of the Shire. This chapter is about the hobbits taking the shire back from the evil forces that have taken it over in their absence. It’s important because it shows that even the most wholesome of places was tainted by Sauron’s evil, but it also shows that Merry and Pippin have become total badasses and they take their home back. I just feel like this was important character development and it’s disappointing that I didn’t get to see it on the big screen.
